Axway AMPLIFY Managed File Transfer

I do not see where you would use this in any other scenarios. It's a purpose built system for sending and receiving data.

FileZilla

It was recommended to us in 1997 to clean up coding from Microsoft documents so that we could prepare web pages without all that unnecessary spaghetti code that was not compatible with HTML products and definitely is not compatible with HTML5 products. We also needed to get rid of header and line codes that might work for a Microsoft document but does not work with HTML, CSS, and many other true to form website design programs. So far, many of the people we have trained as well as mentored were encouraged to acquire the product and they have been using it for everything by stripping out all those hidden codes especially from PDFs.

Pros

Axway AMPLIFY Managed File Transfer

  • If you use Axway SecureTransport with their edge server. The system separates your user accounts from the first point of entry into the system. This is done by creating an edge device in your DMZ that acts only as a proxy to the backend ST server.
  • Their support has been really good when you have a questions or issues with the version you are on. They respond pretty quickly to your open cases.
  • I also like the fact that their system can be really customizable. This does take a little bit of knowledge of how the system works. I did go to a 4 day class that Axway provided back in version 4.
  • They support a wide range of security and automation when it comes to sending/receiving files.
  • They have low CVE vulnerabilities and they keep up with the latest security holes that may arise.
  • SecureTransport is a pretty solid platform and it's pretty hands off once it's up and running. We did have to tweak a few things regarding the memory allocated to the running services and there are a still few open bugs that are supposed to be released in the next SecureTransport. Those are not causing any issue on our side.
  • You can create different templates for your HTTPS sites. This is useful if you have different needs for your customers.

FileZilla

  • Easy to connect: Connecting two Operating Systems via FileZilla is extremely easy. You just need to key in the IP of the system to which you wish to connect and by default, the port which is being used is port number 22 which makes a connection via Secure Shell. Once you key in the IP (make sure SSH is enabled on both of your machines), you open up a files/ folder hierarchy which displays the data on both the machines and you can drag and drop any data and the transfer will seamlessly happen over your local network.
  • Amazing GUI: The GUI being delivered by this platform is extremely simple to use. You need not have any mastery over the technical aspect to use this software. All you need is to know how to pull the IP address of a system and you shall be all ready to configure and start using this tool.

Cons

Axway AMPLIFY Managed File Transfer

  • I have come a cross several bugs that came up in their new releases, but this is kind of expected given they support a wide range of technologies in terms of B2B transfers or ad-hoc transfers.
  • Support is sometimes difficult to communicate with just because of them being out of India. They are responsive and know their stuff when it comes to SecureTransport.

FileZilla

  • Website slow to download from - This is a minor gripe, and only a one time thing, but in writing this review I decided to install the latest version of FileZilla just to make sure I was running the latest and greatest. Turns out that it takes 10 minutes to download from their website, on a 50 Mbit dedicated business line.
  • Some features locked behind Pro - The free version of FileZilla lacks some features that would be nice to have without requiring the upgrade to Pro. However, FileZilla Pro is quite affordable and so if you need integration with Google Drive, OneDrive, DropBox, Box, or many others, then it's definitely worth it.
  • Auto-update could be improved - I had a version of FileZilla installed and it would not auto update. In fact, Mac OS X required me to remove it, saying that it was malware. I re-downloaded FileZilla again after this, but it was odd. At other times, it seems that FileZilla auto-updates just fine.

FileZilla is really easy to understand and makes it easy to log into servers to upload files. Moving files around is a breeze (even if it's a little tedious to wait for large quantities to move one by one) and editing html and css files directly is a feature it would be difficult for us to live without

I've always found the setup of FileZilla to be easy to use and setting up new sites has been quick. In working with FileZilla, I haven't had any issues. I rate it high because it's easy, quick, and free. I think anyone that is familiar with File Explorer can use FileZilla.

Alternatives Considered

Axway AMPLIFY Managed File Transfer

I have not used another product other than SecureTransport. I have only researched to see if there are any alternatives better. Frankly we just don't have the time to invest in switching either. SecureTransport does what it needs to do in our environment.

FileZilla

I have been using FileZilla for over 15 years. I don't remember the other programs that I used to use, but I will tell you that when I found FileZilla, I realized that I didn't need to look any farther. The developer continues to update the program to keep it functioning well.

Return on Investment

Axway AMPLIFY Managed File Transfer

  • Once the system is set up and operational, the only internal support would be to configure new accounts or research failed transmissions. It's really hands off once you have it up and running. It doesn't require a bunch of support or baby sitting.
  • We are able to offer new services to our business customers which benefits both sides.

FileZilla

  • The fact that FileZilla is free is an immediate advantage over other filesharing applications when it comes to maintaining a tight budget.
  • FileZilla being open-source means that new updates and maintenance are also cost-free.
  • The fact that no licenses are required means zero capital expenditure, another bonus.
